Agreed, but like most here seem to want to do, he's always seemingly moving distressed assets for distressed assets. There is no selling high, there is no timeliness of a deal. Even our drafting has been gambling on potential and that potential never being fulfulled. He falls in love with his draft picks rewards them with major extensions before they've earned them. He doubles down on distressed assets repeatedly..... His gamble on Lowry has handcuffed the team from trading any future picks and left us here with a player that is oft-injured, underperforming, will need to be re-signed for more money and has already drawn the ire of his new teammates...... Ugggh.
